Why we love it

Nestled at the foot of the charming Christmas Steps, Chance & Counters is Bristol's only dedicated Board-Game cafe/bar and has fast developed a cult-following. It's a lovingly-created passion project for its 3 owners. Inside you'll find literally 100s of board-games. The knowledgable team help you select a game to suit your vibe, buzzing with enthusiasm as they explain the rules. And off you go – into the rabbit-hole that is modern board-gaming.

As you play, stoke your creativity with a few carefully selected beers, wines or spirits. Or play it safe with a juice or coffee. There's food to fuel your campaign – cheese and meat platters, paninis and baguettes – but ultimately Chance & Counters is all about the games, and boy have they nailed it!
